Refrigerator pickles, or ice box pickles, are simply sliced cucumbers that are placed in a brine and refrigerated for a few hours. You don’t have to go through the steps to can and preserve these pickles; however, these pickles must be stored in the refrigerator and will only last a few weeks.
You can adapt the recipe depending on what spices you have on hand. Omit the jalapeno and crushed red pepper for less spicy pickles, and increase the sugar for sweeter pickles. Use rice vinegar for less tart pickles.
